2nd Man Charged In Theft of $150K Left Behind By ATM Workers

MAHWAH, N.J. (AP) — A second man is in custody for allegedly making off with a bag containing $150,000 in cash that was mistakenly left behind by ATM workers in New Jersey.

Police say 35-year-old Jamar Bludson and another man took the money that had been forgotten outside a Mahwah business on July 27.

Officers found Bludson at a motel in Newark. He is being held on $125,000 bail, charged with theft of mislaid property.

Police believe Bludson was captured on surveillance video jumping out of a van and grabbing the bag. The driver of the van, 42-year-old Alton Harvey of Hillside, was arrested on July 31.

Authorities say Harvey told detectives he bought an SUV with some of the money.
